Casual Double Denim

I've never been massively comfortable wearing double denim (it can go soooo wrong) but I've finally found a double denim outfit I'm happy with. I feel like it's kind of cheating because the jeans are black, but oh well!

It's not the most flattering of outfits, but it's oh so comfortable and so easy to throw on for heading into town for a casual day out. I am so in love with the jacket, I've never seen anything like it before and I guess the best way to describe it would be an anorak-look denim jacket? Probably not the best way, but the only way I can think of! It's definitely going to be a spring staple for me.

The jeans are my Joni jeans from Topshop which again are just so unbelievably comfortable. I think stripes go so well with this outfit (although I think that about most outfits) so I wore my yellow Boden breton underneath, which looks so summery (especially compared to the grey weather in these pictures!). I love the Boden breton tops - they're a little pricier than some, but the quality and fit is amazing.

I recently invested (I say invested, they were £14.50) in some white trainers and I can see myself wearing these all summer long. They did result in an emergency Boots stop off for plasters the first time I wore them out, but I'm hoping that's them all worn in now. Unfortunately white trainers don't photograph well and I promise they're not actually this glaringly white IRL!

I don't often include bags in outfit posts because I usually use the same for aaaages, but I've recently started using a new one so I thought I'd include it. This one is from Cotton Traders* and it's a budget version of those ones by that designer I can't remember because I'm not all that clued up when it comes to designer, BUT those ones are expensive and this one is cheap!
